Once again, small group less than 16 on the trip is the way to go. Always for group to quickly depart and get to the next stop. Enjoyed seeing the Melrose Abbey and the Church where some of the Da Vinci Code was filmed. Only issue is that you can't take pixs in the church wink wink - don't get caught. Make sure that you pet William the Cat during your visit.
The pick up stop for the tour was located very close to the Holiday Inn Express and downtown.

What a fun trip! There was a little rain - but who cares? This is Scotland. Nothing that a beautiful abbey, lush greenery, and warm soup and sandwich can't cure! Melrose Abbey was beautiful. There was a wedding going on so that made it more surreal. Rosslyn Chapel was just as stunning but unfortunately, no inside photos were allowed. Our guide was awesome and had a great laugh. Really a great little trip. And it was very organized at Rabbie's Cafe in downtown Edinburgh. I use Viator for EVERY tour and they have never failed yet!
For the life of me, I cannot remember our driver's name, but he was incredibly knowledgable and detailed in his sharing of the local history. The tour was run by Rabbie's Trail Burners and it was the second tour I've done with them. Thoroughly impressed both times and will recommend them every time. The stops at Melrose Abbey and Rosslyn Chapel were long enough to explore the sites without feeling rushed and the ladies at the chapel did a fantastic job with their presentations as well. Top quality.
Tour guide Al was very knowledgeable about Scottish history and narrated while he drove the tour bus. We enjoyed the drive through the countryside to the different sites. We felt the length of the tour was just right.
We had such a fun day on this tour. Mike was our guide and he was great. I loved the small group experience. We had a group of people on the tour that were interesting and fun to be with.

Wonderful tour. Guide very informative. Never felt rushed.
Kept to time schedule.
Really nice short day trip with a GREAT guide. Ewan B of Rabbies was so knowledgeable, animated, and passionate about his heritage not to mention he looked H-O-T in a kilt :D. He was extremely friendly and it was really great to learn more about the culture and history of Scotland. I loved Melrose Abbey - the old ruins were so beautiful, and I loved Roselyn Chapel too, although the guide didn't know much about the Da Vinci Code as was advertised. Also wouldn't have minded if the tour had been a bit longer actually. All in all, a great little tour - I would highly recommend it.
Pleasant tour. Richard was a good guide. Couch was comfortable
and places visited were interesting.
Bob, our driver and guide, was fun and delightful! Sights are beautiful!
Gillian was outstanding! It was like traveling with a history teacher. Her knowledge of the local area and the sites visited was the best. I highly recommend her for any tours! Thank You!
Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Al, was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. Made the tour fun!
I thoroughly enjoyed the day trip. Besides seeing Melrose Abbey and Rosslyn Chapel, it was our driver and guide, Neal, who really made the trip interesting. He was very informative. He even played a few selections of marvelous Scottish bands while we travelled through the countryside. Cheers to Neal and Rabbie's Tours.
Heather, our driver, was knowledgeable, courteous, kept us on time, and really was the star of the tour. Recommend add 15 min to Melrose stop, need more time for lunch in this very pleasant place away from the crowds of Edinburgh.
What a great day with Ally and a perfect exploration with stops planned perfectly and just enough time devoted to each. Highly recommended
the tour was good! Seeing the country side, Melrose Abbey and Roslyn Chapel were all wonderful. the guide was informative and did a good job.
Great tour with history buff Mike as our driver and guide. Highly recommend this tour and any tour Mike conducts. You will be assured of an interesting and informative tour.
Rabbies was awesome. And we had a very good tour guide Eric. Nice voice too! Thanks viator
